Well at least the French version of the ASA haven't got their knickers in a twist over an advert for ladies fashions :wink: :roll:

I'm sure it will upset somebody.

Sitting on a crossbar will surely bring about the worlds end, from a safety viewpoint and a gender stereo-typing one. Even if she did Captain the tandem. :D

Why have the female sit on the toptube :twisted: Typical sexist advert :twisted:
and why does the female have to be the one who is pregnant!? It's 2015 for crying out loud :roll:
Riding in a wooded area surely requires to riders to be wearing full face helmets and body army! and that flowing hair
would surely get tangled in tree branches! I can see a flood of females arriving in A&E with tree limbs lodged in their hair






My work here is done :roll: :wink:
Honestly chaps, I'm a female!

They'd also have apoplexy here over the adverts for cycling in the Netherlands.




Doesn't it make you want to get the bike out?
